The first ever try-outs for both our successful PreTeam program and brand new Xcel program were held Sunday June 23 at NGTC!
We are so very proud of all the gymnasts for their hard work, focus and attention to details. Their true natures showed as they cheered each other on, although sometimes very quietly, then gave everything they had for the chance of earning a spot on the PreTeam or Xcel program.
"The skills are harder than previous years" stated one of the NGTC Coaches. "With the changes coming down from USA Gymnastics this year, the coaches as well as the athletes are more challenged. We just learned these routines less than a month ago in Reno, NV. and most of these girls already have some of the new skills. Very impressive!"
The gymnasts were showing their skills and demonstrating their abilties to earn one of the spots on either our expanding PreTeam, or the new Xcel program. Attitudes, abilities, willingness to learn, and certainly one of the most important attributes that was judged today, ability to be a good teammate and friend to others on the team!
Parents are to be commended as they cheered from the sidelines and provided unwavering love and support for each of the aspiring gymnasts!
Way to go gymnasts…and parents!
